JONES - Philadelphia






Circa 1850 Cobalt Blue Pontiled Taper Top Soda - Jones's Mineral Water, Philadelphia

I recently culled down my personal collection and have had this bottle for almost 30 years. I've only seen 1 or 2 of the blue examples ever since. It has the applied taper top and an iron pontiled bottom. Nicely whittled.


Height:  7 3/4"  
Color: medium cobalt blue

Condition: perfect structurally with no dings, chips, bruises or nicks. This is a dug bottle that has never been tumble cleaned, and so it has patchy haze and some scaling wear and light swirl etch from being in a wet area. It would polish clean if desired. No residue on the pontil.

Reference Number:  1973

Price: $460
